Power management company Eaton announced its 2017 calendar of classes available at its SOURCE Lighting Education Center, the industry’s leading lighting educational facility offering workshops, symposiums and interactive, hands-on learning experiences. The facility, which has educated over 163,000 professionals and students, offers a wide variety of continuing education-accredited classes designed to broaden the understanding of lighting, controls and its applications. This year, the SOURCE curriculum includes new lighting controls classes ranging from fundamentals to advanced energy-saving controls strategies and classes on commissioning.
Eaton’s commissioning classes focus on Eaton’s controls solutions and are designed for professionals who are already qualified to commission controls. These two-day to five-day classes include some of Eaton’s extensive offering of controls solutions including the company’s iLumin, Greengate, Fifth Light and new Distributed Low-Voltage Power (DLVP) System product lines.
Located at Eaton’s lighting headquarters in Peachtree City, Georgia, the SOURCE classes are designed for industry professionals and students including lighting specifiers and interior designers, architects, utilities personnel, facility managers, retail planners, electrical contractors, energy-saving companies, engineers, distributors, builders, landscape architects, university students and end-users.
“With the continued advancement of controls technology and its integration with light-emitting diodes (LED) lighting, we’ve expanded our curriculum to include additional classes focusing on controls,” said SOURCE Manager Rebecca Hadley-Catter, Eaton’s Lighting Division. “The classes range from basic fundamentals, where students will learn standard control methodologies, controls system approaches, codes and applications, to the latest energy-saving strategies for industrial, commercial, warehousing, and exterior environments.”
